Passing the Baton--Cubs 5 Diamondbacks 1
It is cliché but it truly does all start with the starters. Once again Joe Maddon was able to manage an easy ballgame as his starter pitched deep into the game. It was a sight for sore eyes as the Professor finally looked like the Professor. Hendricks matched Cole Hamels seven shutout innings and a... Read more »

Cubs vs. Diamondbacks: Series Preview (4/19-4/21)
The Cubs took care of business with a three-game sweep of the Marlins in Miami. While the Fish are lousy, a sweep is always an accomplishment.

AAA New Orleans 8, Iowa 5 Game Recap The transition to AAA hasn’t been smooth for Matt Swarmer (L, 1-2, 6.00) so far. He hasn’t generated as many whiffs as last season, meaning more drawn out at bats, leading to a higher walk rate and inflated pitch counts. The lucky HR rate he posted in 2018 has reversed...

AAA Iowa PPD AA Jackson 9, Tennessee 0 Game Recap Wow. If you took a look at Thomas Hatch‘s overall numbers at the conclusion of this game (0-1, 5.65 ERA) you would think he had been struggling all season rather than being the organization’s hottest pitcher entering the game. But early season statistics can take a quick turn... Read more »

Taking Care of Business--Cubs 4 Marlins 0
The Miami Marlins are not a good team. The Cubs are supposedly a very good team. This series has played out exactly the way it should. That feels rare for baseball. Some might want to temper the positives of this two game winning streak, but wins do not come with asterisks in the standings. The... Read more »
